Sharon Garland explains about The Consortium, a new shared home for small businesses.
Sharon and her husband Mike bought 17, West Street in Storrington to serve as a shop front for their business, selling imported French kitchenware.
They are also teaming up with other small companies, renting them space in the building at an affordable rate.
The official opening is this Saturday, with a pop-up cafe offering free tea and coffee with every cake purchased.
On Sunday, weather permitting, there will be a pop-up ice cream shop outside the premises.
